Coconut Flour Corn Bread
By Rose Mary Mogan cookinginillinois
Adding FIBER to your diet gets easier when you add COCONUT FLOUR to this recipe. It looks and taste like a cross between Jiffy Mix,a sweet bread or Honey Corn Bread. This recipe uses 1/4 cup of coconut flour, and adds 10 grams of fiber to the complete recipe. This recipe is from a cookbook COOKING WITH COCONUT FLOUR By Bruce Fife. I did make a few minor changes, but nothing to alter the taste or flavor of the original recipe. This corn bread is very moist, slightly sweet, and very flavorful, and you are sure to love it as we did. Lowering your carb intake is a lot easier with this recipe.
eggs,( i used 9 medium)
butter or coconut oil, melted
sifted coconut flour
corn meal ( i used yellow corn meal)
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Melt butter in a medium size bowl, then add salt, eggs, vanilla, & honey. But spray measuring cup with non stick cooking spray FIRST, and it will release honey much easier. then beat ingredients till well mixed.
2Next in a small bowl mix the coconut flour with baking powder and yellow corn meal, stir with a spoon to blend together then pour into liquid mixture, and beat till well combined and no visible lumps remain.
3Butter or grease a 8 inch cast iron skillet or 8X8 X2 inch baking dish,and add corn bread mixture to skillet or dish, and bake in preheated 400 degree F. Oven for approximately 18 to 20 minutes, Serves 8 normal appetites. Serve with butter or your choice of spread while still warm.
4NOTE MY HUSBAND COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS BREAD,HE SAID IT SORT OF TASTED LIKE CAKE. It is very good, but I didn't want to over do it, even though it is much better than regular corn Bread I had a very small slice. Please also note that Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture. I will be making this again and again. It really does taste great, and it looks picture perfect. It is a bit pricey, but has a lot more fiber than any of the other flours, and I am trying to make better choices in my food selections. Smile
